Gamecocks make wardrobe change
By Edward Aschoff
COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Usually, teams like to make last-minute game plan or personnel changes.
For South Carolina, the Gamecocks decided to make a costume change as they came out in their regular black uniform tops instead of the Wounded Warrior tops. Outside of the fact that the names on the backs were replaced with the "core values" the camo design inside the numbers made them pretty hard to read all the way up here, so figuring out who was who was pretty tough just before kickoff.
It was probably pretty hard for the TV people as well.
For whatever reason, the Gamecocks decided to change out of them. It hasn't hurt them as they lead Auburn 6-3 after a 50-yard reception by Alshon Jeffery. Jeffery just manhandled Auburn's T'Sharvan Bell on the play and there might have been a little bit of a push off, but it's hard not to get a little physical when you're a monster like Jeffery.
